MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Vermont Gov. Phil Scott is throwing his support behind former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination.
The endorsement comes about two weeks before Vermont and other states participate in the “Super Tuesday” primaries on March 3.
Scott, who has been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump, in September became the first Republican governor to support an impeachment inquiry against the president. After the Senate acquittal this month, Scott said Trump abused his power and shouldn’t be in office.
Weld says Scott has served Vermont well and he’s delighted by the endorsement.
